that the assad regime used or tried to use chemical weapons. president obama said repeatedly that the use of chemical weapons would cross a red line forcing action but stopped short of saying what type of action would be taken. the white house is very concerned about the use of chemical weapons against rebels and civilians but equally concerned that the weapons may fall into the hands of extremist groups fighting alongside the rebels. president obama reduced expectations that the u.s. would intervene in syria any time soon. as the fighting rages on u.s. officials fear if the united states were to intervene and remove assad, things may just get worse. harris? >> harris: conor, thank you. a knife attack in new mexico leaves four people hurt. it happened in a place of worship. details still coming into the newsroom now from albuquerque. service was closing this morning when a young man climbed over the pews and began repeatedly stabbing the choir's lead singer. other parishonners may have been hurt as they struggled to substitute attacker. remarkably none of the injuries considered life thre

the white house is under growing pressure to take some kind of action. so far president obama has been reluctant to get involved, but as abc's jonathan karl reports that may be changing. >> reporter: embattled syrian president bashar al assad the man accused of using chemical weapons on his own people made his first public appearance in more than a month appearing entirely at ease on syrian state tv, touring an electrical plant in damascus. the white house is turning up the heat. >> syria's future cannot include assad. his hands are bathed in blood, the blood of his own people. he has no place in syria's future and no support from the syrian people. >> reporter: senior u.s. officials say the administration is now considering sending weapons to rebel fighters. they have requested anti-aircraft and anti-tank weapons. abc news has learned the first nonmilitary aid to rebel fighters arrived in syria and more is in the pipeline. including body armor, military vehicles, and night vision goggles. sending weapons would be a big escalation, and a move that president obama rejected last year out

the men, but certainly a substantial coincidence, wolf? >> we do know president obama spoke to president putin today in russia. they had what the white house calls a good conversation, and the president of the united states thanked the russian president for the cooperation in this investigation, at least this phase in the investigation. i get the sense both of these governments, despite the fact they are not allies or close friends, they are working a little bit more closely now as far as the terrorism situation is concerned. is that the impression you're getting in moscow, as well, nick? >> reporter: well, it's very interesting to see how little the russians are giving away in public here, but how often it appears putin and obama want to talk about the cooperation they are doing and appear to want to be talking positively about that. we also heard from an aide from putin in moscow saying quite simply the continuation of cooperation will continue. severe obvious efforts for cooperation here on the surface. combined with some strange back chatter we're hearing from, you know, on the hill,

partisan republicans was the buddy embrace with obama in the hour of crisis. how has the president and white house done since then? >> another president has kept every promise that he made. the fact is that is what i was saying at the time. i was asked at the time how is the president doing and i said he is doing a good job. he has kept his word. so everybody knows that i have about 95% level of disagreement with barack obama on issues of principle and philosophy, but the fact is we have a job to do and what peep expect from people they elect is to do their job and why they hate washington so much and you know that, john. they hate washington because many don't care about getting the job done. they care about arguing and building right and the president is guilty of that and the congress is guilty of. what we did at the time was we saw suffering together. when you see that you will step up and be responsible or you're not. we stepped up and were responsible together. since that time i have to say everything they promised they would do, they have done and so i don't have any complai

. there seems to be mixed messages coming from the white house. syrian opposition members say they know of no plans to arm these syrian rebels on the ground but we are also hearing that president obama seemed to indicate in his press conference yesterday that the use of chemical weapons has not been explored enough and that it raises more questions really than it answers. >> what we now have is evidence that chemical weapons have been used inside of syria but we don't know how they were used, when they were used, who used them. we don't have a chain of custody that establishes what exactly happened. >> reporter: as the president spoke more video emerged online of people claiming to have been exposed to chemical weapons. as with all such claims thus far they are impossible to verify. that has not stopped panic from spreading inside syria where fears of a large scale chemical attack are growing. in a letter attained by margaret brennan, the leader of the free syrian army asked president obama for support from the u.s. in dealing with the threat of chemical weapons. and warned that the cos
